I spent a humongous chunk of the day piecing 2 more of my table runners. I need to have 7 of them done by Christmas; 8 if I make one for my club Christmas exchange. I'll finish those this week, hopefully by Wednesday so I can cut out the pieces for the last one. I want them all done by the 1st so I can spend November quilting them.

I don't have a lot of "spare" fabric to make a sandwich to practice straight stitch quilting on my "new" machine, a '54 Singer 66. I want to learn all about quilting on her, so what better way than a bunch of small projects. I hope to post some WIP projects soon.

What about you guys?

I sewed a block for a swap that I'm not even participating in. Go figure, lol. Then I SID'ed a wall-hanging and need to finish the binding.

I put the binding on a lap quilt for my mother for Christmas. Next I have two quilts back from the quilter that I will be binding. But I'm dying to start a fall table runner and a Christmas Attic Window wall hanging!!

I went garage saling. I found some really nice fabric for a reasonable price, but I don't need anymore fabric. I can't seem to say no to a good deal on fabric.

A friend of mine is working on a cathedral window by hand. Thought I'd give it a try, got on the tutorials and found Eddie's machine pieced tutorial. Yessss! That's more my speed Bought my muslin and have some feedsack pieces. Will probably sew the turned back curved pieces by hand to give it authenticity since I'm using muslin and feedsacks.

No sewing for me, only work. I work for a 25 bed hospital and we are moving this weekend to a brand new building. Will sew again after the stress level goes down.

Was gifted a different sewing desk, spent the day adjusting it to my room. Have also been cutting 2" green squares for my scrap box.
